Lace choker necklace diy: tools and materials
- The lace ribbon. You can find a lace ribbon in the needlework shop. There is material of different width and color. Patterns range from the simplest to the most complex. Accordingly, and the price for them is different. But we’ll show you how to make a choker out of lace that you can find at home. Often clothes are no longer suitable for wearing, and the lace on it has the same pure color and the fabric structure remained perfect. So it happened with our summer white blouse. Using such material, the work will be slightly larger than with the purchased tape. But this method is very economical.
- Fasteners. Since the lace ribbon does not stretch so much to just dress the made choker over your head, you will have to think about how to connect the two ends of the jewelry. You can tie it in the back with a bow, but it sometimes looks too bulky. You can buy fasteners in a specialized store, but it will take us some time and you will incur certain costs. We used a buckle from an old broken wide bracelet. By the way, we advise you to find just such a fastening too.
— You will also need sharp scissors for the fabric, pliers, centimeter tape measure, candle.

- Separate the tape from the fabric. If the lace is not wide, then it is necessary to unpick it. Do it slowly, so as not to damage the delicate fabric, otherwise the choker will be spoiled. If the lace ribbon is wide, then you can simply cut off it from the fabric, as we did.
- Measure the girth of your neck and cut off the necessary lace length. This can be done with a centimeter. Or try the tape to the neck, not stretching it too much. In our case, the length of the unstrung ribbon is 30 cm.
- Determine the width of the future choker. It depends on your preferences. We decided that for us the optimal width would be three centimeters. Cut it as straight as possible. You may need a ruler and a pencil, with which you will outline the line from the inner side of the fabric. Or follow the picture of lace. Making an equal edge is not so easy as it seems at first sight.
- If you gently cut the lace off the fabric, mayby, it does not require any processing of the edges, everything has already been done by professionals. And if you had to cut the lace, because it was too wide, then you need to process the edges, so that in time the small threads are not spoiled the look of the chocer. There are two ways — to master the technique of working on a sewing machine or process the edge with a flame.
- We chose the second one. But here you need skill too. Take care that the candle is firmly on the stand, the fire is uniform and does not change the direction of the draft or people passing by. Bring the lace gently to the candle, but not too close. The fabric should gently melt at the tips, but leave no brown or black marks. The edge must be straight after processing. Otherwise, the choker will be sloppy.
- Insert the edges of the fabric into the fasteners and press with pliers.
